Sportster Trikes in Russia

 If you love Sportsters, you can appreciate these trikes (story to follow taken from Horizons Unlimited, which if you've never read (like me), you really should swing over for some great short travel stories), I know I'll be checking them out regularly (probably not stealing too many photos form them, but I "took" these two to get you interested in something pretty darn cool. Enjoy:

This couple rode their Sportster Trikes across Russia...
"It was really hard to ride these low to the ground trikes with very short suspension on some of the Russian roads, especially at the roadworks but we got so much feedback from the friendly Russian people! Almost every time we stopped for petrol, food, hotel or whatever we stopped for there came Russians with their cellular phone cameras and took photos of the bikes, of us at the bikes and themselves together with the bikes and us... even in the traffic they took photos from their cars, they waved at us and gave the sign thumbs up. Even the police stopped us just to take photos! The positive response was overwhelming and this helped us a lot when we were battling with the roughest roads!"
